[TN014] Dallas Simpson - For Whom The Bells Told
This is an unreleased extract from a walkabout combining exploration with intuitive freeform improvisation using found objects and surfaces. Recorded using custom in-ear binaural techniques in one continuous single take with no rehearsal. All spatial choreography created live on location.
The finale of this extract was improvised on a number of metal bollards to the rear of the bell tower:
Working freely in a public space the aim is to engage, explore, interrogate and excite the potentialities of sound from silent objects and surfaces in a state of perpetual sensory communion. The approach is to work unobtrusively with humility not attempting to make a 'public performance' or to attract the attention of other people in the area.
Dallas Simpson, October 2008.
